Do we need supplements in pregnancy?

I have mixed feelings about supplementation.

On the one hand, I think that they are super important for people who are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals. On the other hand, I think that there are some brands that are of such poor quality that they probably aren’t worth taking.

But what do I know about supplements? …I’m just a physio.

So, I asked my nutrition guru buddy Lily Nichols. I reckon what she doesn’t know about nutrition and pregnancy could probably fit on a postage stamp. This lady loves to read the science (she’s even nerdier than me!) and had over 900 (!!) references in her new book on Real Food for Pregnancy.

I also asked her to give some tips on how to make eating real food easier…cos let’s face it, it’s so much easier to order a pizza (mmm…pizza!).

 

If you would like to get Lily’s book, it is available on Amazon.
